Honey Apricot Frozen Yogurt

Fruity, fat-free, and So. Freaking. Good.

Honey Apricot Frozen Yogurt | spachethespatula.com #recipeYou guys, I’m kind of obsessed with this frozen yogurt. It’s unbelievably delicious, annnnd it’s totally in line with my whole pre-cruise diet type thing. Total win, right? It only has 4 ingredients, too: Greek yogurt, fresh apricots, honey, and vanilla extract. That’s it!

It’s basically the perfect Summer treat—refreshing, cooling, and tasty! I find fro-yo preferable to regular ice cream in the Summer, and totally crave the full-fat cream stuff in the cooler months. Sounds strange, but there is something about super creamy ice cream and blazing hot sun that don’t go super well to me. However, tangy, fat-free fro-yo and sunshine…that’s a match made in heaven, I think 🙂

Honey Apricot Frozen Yogurt | spachethespatula.com #recipe Honey Apricot Frozen Yogurt | spachethespatula.com #recipeGuess what? Making this frozen yogurt is so incredibly easy. The hardest part is waiting overnight for the yogurt to strain. Seriously, the rest of the process is blending, churning, and freezing.

Straining the yogurt overnight means a thicker end result, and a creamier, less icy consistency. The alcohol in the vanilla extract also helps prevent icing. But, I will say that because there is so little fat in this, you should leave it at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before scooping, because it can get pretty hard in the freezer. Once it’s been out for a little bit though, it get’s unbelievably creamy…shockingly so, actually.

Perhaps subconsciously inspired by my recent binge watching of Orange is the New Black (OMG, I can’t get enough! Whyyy is this show so addicting? It’s really Netflix’s fault for releasing it all at once…), I topped a scoop of the orangey frozen yogurt with some dark chocolate pieces. It was divine!
